Module 6 of Improving Nutrition in Aged Care

About this Event

15th September 2020 Diabetes and Obesity Management

1.30 to 3.30pm AEST

Are your residents with diabetes served the same meals as everyone else? Is there a need to provide a stricter diet for some? Can they have the same cakes and sweets as everyone else? NPA will discuss the current evidence for diabetes and diet management for older individuals. We will explain the effect of different foods on blood glucose levels, and how to manage hypoglycaemia and sick days.

Also, we discuss the risks and benefits of obesity on older people and when it may be appropriate to change the types of foods provided (and when it is not!). It must be remembered that obesity and malnutrition can co-exist and we must be very careful to ensure that we are not imposing dietary restrictions inappropriately.

This is the sixth in a series of 10 modules on Improving Nutrition in Aged Care.
